Can anyone point me in the way of:

a) someone who can supply Braided linen cord (3-6 mm)

b) any resources on how to make it yourself using methods suitable for C14 Living History (me being a complete novice at it)

Thanks in advance

Well my Missus could make some up for you easily enough. Or you could make it yourself.

See the post below:-

'Finger braiding' is one of those skills a bit like kniting. Looks like an arcane art to the outsider but once you get the hang of it. . .
